Dan Dan Noodle Bowl

Boy, do I miss the luxury of ordering take-out!  There just ain’t much going on here in the Dallas area in terms of Paleo or allergen-friendly dining.   Sure, once in a while, I take the chance from one of our two go-to Asian eateries…which are […]

Instant Pot Comfort Chicken Noodles – AIP, Whole 30

I would like to thank Chef Derek Graham for the inspiration for these Comfort Chicken Noodles.  Like, DUDE.  His dish is one of my favorite meals of all time.  The kind where you could just eat bowl after bowl and feel your thighs telling you […]

Even at Costco, organic and uncured deli chicken or turkey breast meat with zero refined sugars is going to set you back around $10/lb…or more!  It can be far more frugal to make your own at home, and with such an easy process, you may […]

Chayote Cucumber Sausage Hash – Paleo, Keto, AIP, Whole 30

Anyone else a huge diner food foodie? I’m a fan of fancy French and Japanese delicacies, all tidy and decorated and haute-couture styled, don’t get me wrong. But on the day to day, its nice to enjoy a big bowl of messily thrown-together grub. Enter […]

Georgia Peach Skillet Chicken – AIP, Paleo, Whole 30

Well ain’t she a peach? (The chicken, that is.) A good seventeen years ago, a good friend of mine introduced me to a little culinary delight known as “Apricot Chicken.” Basically, you mix a jar of sugary apricot jelly with a bottle of Russian or […]

Surf & Turf Scampi Lettuce Cups – AIP, Low-FODMAP, Whole 30

Shrimp Scampi and Garlic Steak. Who says they only need to go with a baked tater and a house salad? Let’s combine the two succulent proteins, and pile them high on top of cool, crisp romaine hearts. And just to show off, we’re gonna sorta […]

Safflower Petal Chicken – AIP, Paleo, Whole 30

Safflower Petal Chicken – AIP, Paleo, Whole 30

Safflower petals are a delicately floral and mildly earthy tasting gem of a seasoning that I keep around for those days when I need to give my taste buds a little jump start away from the ordinary.  Safflower, aka Azafran and even Poor Man’s Saffron, is a “spice” […]

Who doesn’t get a little ho-hum-drum bored of the same ole spices and seasonings Every. Single. Day?  The Autoimmune Protocol sure does limit a lot of what we are used to flavoring our dishes with: Fruit-based spices, seed spices, and nightshade spices are all some […]

Crispy Fried Fish – AIP, Paleo, Whole 30, Keto

In my 20’s I sure loved a trip to the local pub, where I would enjoy a Guinness or Murphy stout paired with a hot crispy plate of freshly fried fish and chips. Beer battered food with beer. That’s how I rolled. Nowadays, there’s not […]
